As of right now the fighting in the Middle East is horrible. As of 01/18/01, 322 people had been killed. Of these, 273 of these had been Palestinian, 13 had been Israeli Arabs, and 36 had been Israeli Jews. These horrific deaths had occurred at a variety of different times and places. Some had been in cars, in the streets, at holy sites, and others had been in supermarkets. The fighting is so bad that the Christmas celebrations had been canceled. Drastic measures must be taken to stop the fighting.
